An amazing experience in Costa Rica

I’ve had an amazing 6 weeks. The staff were really welcoming and helped me settle in quickly; they were knowledgeable and able to answer questions, or point volunteers in the right direction to find out! This has been an incredible experience and I’d recommend any like-minded people without hesitation.

It has definitely inspired me to travel in the future and I’d like to return to Costa Rica to see more of the country. I’d also look at frontier projects in the future as it has inspired me to get involved in a project like this again rather than simply travelling and sightseeing.

I would tell new volunteers to stick it out even if in the first few days you feel like you’ll never get used to it, you will! And to keep a journal, so much happens in such a short space of time its really nice to read over it and refresh all your memories.

I thought it was a fair price considering all the things that the budget has to cover. Its also a fair price compared to other companies that provide similar projects and experiences.
